Honeywell selected to install fire and gas detection system at BTC pipeline terminal.

Honeywell has been selected by Tekfen Construction & Installation to design, configure, install and commission a new fire and gas detection system at the BTC pipeline terminal in Ceyhan, Turkey.

The BTC pipeline carries crude oil from the Azeri-Chirag-Guneshli oil field in the Caspian Sea to the Mediterranean. It connects Baku, the capital of Azerbaijan; Tbilisi, the capital of Georgia; and the port of Ceyhan on the south-east coast of Turkey – hence BTC pipeline. At 1768 kilometres it is the second longest pipeline in the world.

The project is funded by a consortium of 11 oil and gas companies led by BP. The new fire and gas detection system will include Honeywell’s Safety Manager and Searchline Excel open path gas detectors, as well as closed-circuit television (CCTV) flame detectors. The system will cover the tank farm, metering and jetty areas at the Ceyhan terminal. Honeywell’s Experion Process Knowledge System (PKS) will be installed in the terminal’s central control room and used to monitor all aspects of the system including alarming, events and video recording. In addition, the new system will be fully integrated with existing automation systems on the BTC pipeline. This will further increase plant safety by providing operators with full visibility of all gas levels and flame detection to enable better decision-making capability.

“Enhancing the safety of a major pipeline requires the right technology and experience in order to keep the process safe and operations on track,” said Naci Erakn, country leader, Honeywell Process Solutions, Turkey. “Streamlined information, professional project management and effective solutions for the customer all play major roles in addressing the pipeline’s safety. Our solution will keep the plant operating safely and provide operators with additional information that will help improve the performance of the pipeline.”
